As part of our Local Plan examination, we are currently exploring whether any additional sites may be suitable to help meet the objectively assessed need for housing.


This Icon for pdf consultation document [25.95MB] identifies all the sites on a settlement by settlement basis. Hard copies of the document can also be viewed in libraries and parish and town council offices around the borough.


This is your opportunity to comment on the promoted sites before any decisions are made on which sites, if any, will be taken forward to the examination.


Comment on promoted sites


Alternatively, you can download a Icon for pdf comments form [303.36KB] return it by email to or send your completed form to the council offices. Please use a separate form for each site you wish to make comments on.


The deadline for comments to be received is 5pm on Tuesday 18 June 2019.


Promoted sites are not automatically included as part of the Local Plan and are not exempt from planning permission rules. No decisions have been made at this stage.
